Shipping the mighty hurricane—A Saga Pt. 2
We’re so excited that Gump’s San Francisco chose to use the Dunes and Duchess hurricanes and candelabras for their tabletop display during their Imagining China celebration that runs until the end of October. Dunes and Duchess will be featured alongside designs by Ann Getty, Douglas Durkin, Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman, Jay Jeffers, Barbara Scavullo, and Suzanne Tucker. We are thrilled! The show is in conjunction with the 2010 San Francisco Fall Antiques Show held October 28-31.
So how do you ship almost 50 pounds of glass held together with a leather hinge cross country?
Inside, the hurricane is held in place by a solid foam mold specially created for Dunes and Duchess. The hurricane nestles into the box and is then strapped to a wooden palatte. Dunes added his own personal touches though, such as the leather pads under the nylon straps.
If any of you are going to be attending the festival or find yourself walking through Gump’s now till Halloween, send us a photo and we’ll post it!
